DigiBarn: Demos of the historic LINC Computer which was restored by some of the original LINC team members in mid 2007. In this series of four videos we see how the LINC operated, read tapes, allowed keyboard entry of commands, programs to be run and even music to be played. A lesson on how to handle LINC tape (which became adapted for DEC tape later) is given. We also see how the team manages to download LAP-6 LINC program source through a serial connection to a modern laptop. Thus we see a... Topics: Computer History, LINC
